Home Grown And Jitka
I also made the mini version on the right hand side to protect the Broccoli Waltham,grown from USA seeds this year.
This Poppy was blooming just under the side of the Onion bed.My secret strimmer had not strimmed this Poppy away.I love the delicate petals,covered in jewels of droplets, after i watered the Onions.
The area behind the last two raised beds needs clearing,and maybe covering with black tarp.The weeds and grasses grow like mad on any bare soil.I am thinking of green manure for all the raised beds to try to prevent the weeds getting a hold.
The allotment has last years Leeks growing flower buds,ready for me to try to harvest the seeds.This years Leek Neptune are in the Greenhouse.
There are Potatoes,Red and White Onions,Shallots,Garlic,Sage,Peas, and Turnips growing.I have sown more Peas,and French Beans in the raise beds.
The allotment will help provide lots of fresh Vegetables for our meals this year.
